Teaching Experience

Since my first voluntary experience as an Engish instructor (see picture above; for more photos, click here to open a new window) in a rural area in Fujian, a Southern province in China, a strong enthusiasm in teaching has grown in me. Then I became a graduate student in Applied Linguistics and Technology, and am determined to take education as my life career.
